“Comfortable but not memorable”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Hotel Duo is stylish throughout. The rooms are luxurious, impeccable, and the beds very comfortable. However, if you are paying €300 per night, there are places in Paris that are friendlier, and have more character, and include breakfast.

Great location and very friendly and accommodating staff. Great place to stay if you want to walk around the city and see the sites. Also very close a metro station so any place is close by. The rooms are small but no smaller than anywhere else in Paris. Front desk is staffed 24/7 and will help you at any hour whether its finding a place to eat or the fastest way to get somewhere. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to friends or family visiting Paris.

Room Tip: Rooms on lower floors can tend to have more street noise.

I've been to the Hotel Duo many many times; it's wonderful.

Keep in mind the room & bathrooms are small, but lovely design. Clean and comfortable.

Location perfect; staff great. Why stay in a remote area when you can stay here!?!?!

I always stay at Hotel Duo Marais when in Paris. The staff are always nice and accommodating and the location cannot be beat! The rooms are tiny; but ALL hotel rooms in Paris are tiny unless you are staying in some Luxury hotel suite. The rooms are always clean, modern and with lovely Frogonard products in the bathroom. The one and only criticism that I have is the internet connection is not up to standard; but I think this is a France-wide problem and in all fairness to the hotel, not specific to them. Even the internet at most cafes, such as Starbucks and Le Pain Quitidien as well as my own Blackberry service seem below standard in comparison to other EU countries. so..... will ALWAYS stay at this hotel when available :)

My title line says it all. This was a fabulous location, walking distance to tourist sites, the Metro, and wonderful shops, cafes and nightlife. Room was a little small, but well appointed with plenty of closet space, nice bathroom amenities, good finishes. It was comfortable. Besides, who wants to spend all their time in a hotel when you're in Paris?! Staff was excellent and very helpful. Friendly and courteous, they helped with all our questions and took good care. We would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Ask for exterior facing room.

I have stayed in many hotels in Paris, more or less expensive, more or less enjoyable. I did not stay in hotel DUO before because I could always get a better deal somewhere. The hotel DUO is not cheap but you get value for your money. The location is great, really in the center one of the nicests parts of Paris and the rest of the city is easy reachable by metro. As the hotel is situated in an old building, everything is a little small but the inner architecture is very tasteful and the rooms are fully equipped.
The neigbourhood is quite lively till late in the night but it does disburb as the rooms are quite good isolated.
Jost one remark, the hotel is situated in a gay friendly district so if 2 men walking hand in hand shocks you, take another hotel but if not, it only adds to a happy and open 'couleur locale'. I enjoyed my stay!

Room Tip: The higher the room, the better you sleep...
